About 2 hours drive from Cabo. It’s a hidden gem. We have visited so many beaches around the world, and this one is on the top of the list. Nature at its best. You can rent an umbrella and relax. Make sure you stop by...More

Nice outing with a visiting amigo. When you go bring your own umbrella or get there early to score one of the many pomfon shaded areas on the shore

This beach is absolutely gorgeous. Traveling with small children we have to be mindful of the waves and the water was absolutely perfect for our toddler here. It was something out of a postcard! We tried going the first time but didn’t arrive until 11...More

We thoroughly enjoyed this beach, only a short trip from La Paz. Kayaked in the mangroves and walked through the crystal clear, warm waters. You don’t need a mask and snorkle to see an array of sea life. Next time we’d take a cooler with...More

This beautiful beach was full of surprises. Maybe because I didn't do my homework, went on a whim and had no idea what to expect. Many wouldn't drive 2 hours out of Cabo San Lucas (the tourist area) and come to a beach they only...More

If you visit La Paz, Balandra beach is a must. Its a very safe beach, and you can walk inside the sea more that 100 yards. The scenario is amazing combining the dessert and the sea.

Unadulterated beauty is necessary in this world. Why, one might ask, is it necessary? I say it is because of the potential for a sort of epiphany one might experience in the magnificence of the natural world that is not possible through any other medium...More

Hi, it depends where you want to stay. I believe there were a few smaller places on the way to this beach. But you might be better off staying at one of the many hotels along the malecon in La Paz.
